ABOUT BETHANY LINZ
Bethany Linz was established by Bethany Linz and Pauline Ollmann in 2013 who met whilst working for Mokum Textiles. Their passion is to design and produce beautiful, unique, high quality textiles, wallpaper, artwork and home furnishings for the Australian and international market.
Bethany Linz, Artistic Director:
Bethany worked for Mokum Textiles (Australia’s leading interior textile company), from 2006, working her way up after five years to become Senior Designer. She is responsible for many of their more exquisite and embellished designs.
Prior to that, Bethany completed an Advanced Diploma in Fine Art, majoring in Painting and Printmaking from Newcastle TAFE in 2004.
Bethany was born in Newcastle in 1984 and attributes her artistic development to the Steiner education her parents encouraged her to receive. She has had her textiles and prints exhibited at various galleries in Australia and has also designed cosmetic packaging and worked cohesively on a textile collection for Catherine Martin.
Pauline Ollmann, Marketing/Sales Director:
Pauline worked for 13 years for the British architect, Lord Norman Foster, in his London, Hong Kong and Frankfurt offices.
In Sydney, she completed a Diploma in Surface Design before working as showroom Account Manager at Mokum Textiles. This cemented her love of fabrics and the importance of design integrity.
She has worked closely with interior designers on a consultancy basis, putting together fabrics and furnishings for residential and commercial schemes.
